By the Canadian Open Data Society and the Government of British Columbia

Event Details

Our Summits are the go-to event for open data advocates, practitioners, users, champions and entrants seeking professional development, learning, and networking opportunities. Following British Columbia and Canada’s current and innovative thinking, we invite you to delve into these compelling topics:

Open Data, Digital Futures and AI

Data is often at the center of digital service transformation. Discussions around open data and AI bring exciting opportunities, along with unanswered questions. How can we leverage data as part of our digital future? How do we regulate the use of data in emerging technology? Who is responsible for the risks and rewards of using artificial intelligence? Did anyone say ChatGPT?

Actionable Data for Equity, Inclusion, Diversity and Anti-Racism

We know, across Canada, there is much work to be done to break down barriers, become more equitable, and to eliminate racism—people are asking for systemic change in our justice, healthcare and education systems. Data is key in identifying where these barriers exist, and ways to eliminate them. How can we better use data to support this important work? How do we assure the public their data is safe and being used in the right ways?

Open Energy

As climate change and political tensions bring more awareness to the importance of energy in our daily lives, many organisations are advocating for greater access to energy data. How can we contribute to the rise of open energy? Together we’ll discuss solutions to improve access and use of energy data – for efficiency, economic stimulation, policy development, and to change the world!
